TV Land Renews 'Younger' for Season 3

TV Land has renewed its hit original comedy series Younger for a third season, it was announced today at the Television Critics Association's winter press tour. Season 3 will include 12 episodes. The renewal comes before the comedy starts its second season on Wednesday, January 13.

"Younger was a critical success and fan favorite right out of the gate, and Darren Star and his team of writers have brought an ever sexier, shocking sophomore season to the table," said Keith Cox, Executive Vice President, Development and Original Programming, TV Land. "We're thrilled with the show and what it's done for the network, and we're so confident in our viewers' passion for it. We're excited for our audience to see season two and beyond."

Younger follows Liza (Sutton Foster), a 40-year-old woman who pretends to be 26 in order to get a job in the highly competitive world of publishing - and succeeds. Now working under the prickly Diana (Miriam Shor), Liza has to figure out how to balance her real life with best friend Maggie (Debi Mazar), and her "pretend" life with her new crew - friend/coworker Kelsey (Hilary Duff), fashion publicist Lauren (Molly Bernard) and the always-sketchy Thad (Dan Amboyer), Kelsey's boyfriend. After Liza let her secret slip to sexy young tattoo artist Josh (Nico Tortorella) at the end of the first season, she now must try to salvage their relationship, all while navigating a confusing chemistry with her boss Charles (Peter Hermann) and dealing with her daughter Caitlin's (Tessa Albertson) return from studying aboard.

The series is written and executive produced by Darren Star.
